Dan Davis

"The period's equipment was especially rough on high voices such as Melba's soprano, thinning them out and removing resonances that make voices bloom. Despite such inherent limits, Ward Marston's transfers get more from this recalcitrant material that I'd imagined possible: Melba's voice is reproduced here with more body and range than in any other version of these recordings that I have heard.

This disc has appreciable artistic interest as well as historical worth. It's an important addition to the most interesting, best-transferred, and lowest-priced line of historical recordings in the catalogue."
